COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Part of Tank Ten Series
As a child, RoboHop was shunned for his laser beam eyeballs, bulbous hop-shaped torso and robotic limbs.
During adolescence however, things changed for our hero. He captained his high school hockey team, routinely took over dance floors, and thusly, garnered a lot of attention from female classmates.
Today, RoboHop battles blandness by making this killer-hoppy and bracingly bitter beer. Suffer.
Seasonal: Part of Tank Ten Series.

Draft to taster Grapefruit, spruce, soap, and orange. Hazy, light amber with a thin white head. Taste is grapefruit, soap, yeast, spruce, pepper and lots of bitterness. Solid, but not great.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Thanks to Sammy for sharing - Initially, the aroma was predominately resin, but as it warned hints of tropical fruit began to appear. A slighly hazy orangish-amber pour with a non-lasting white head and moderate lacing. The flavors take their lead from the nose, resin, tropical fruit and and strong bitter finsh and after taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, RobobHop flexes its hop induced mussels saves us from villan, Dr. Blandbier.

Ratman197 (10204) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, grapefruit and light pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Boutip (4863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep bright orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of grassy and citrusy floral hops is powerful but also very enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by huge grassy, citrusy floral hops notes with lightly sweet malt backbone. Resinous hoppy notes are also noticeable and overall there is lots of hops oil flavours coming through. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Probably one of the best IIPA brewed in Ontario.

Thanks Jay! A really nice looking beer, with an golden body and a thick creamy white head that laces really well. Aroma is pungent hops, some melon, citrus. Very sweet beer, with hot alcohol. Resinous and sticky and well...alright.

Gethinbeer (2203) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Cheers Joe McPhee. Lovely fresh fruit hop aroma. Clear golden pour with a thin head and lasting lacing on the glass. Grapefruit hop flavour. Sharp citrus bitterness yet keeps a subtle sweetness. Great balanced beer. Really enjoyable.

The first time in a bomber rather then can, it still holds up very well. The hoppy bitterness gives way to a citrusy back end that is quite refreshing.

cfrancis (2505) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours hazy deep gold with a foamy white top. Aroma is big citrus hops and cereal grains. Taste is orange zest coupled with big citrus hop flavouring and moderate bitterness. Resinous mouthfeel and some nice dankness.

robinvboyer (3261) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
650ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden/copper pour, with a medium white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, papaya, kiwi, and some sweet citrus. Mouthfeel is medium, and a touch viscous, with a solid carb. The finish is quite bitter, you can tell this is a palate thrasher. Medium to high bitterness, with quite a bit grapefruit pith,and citrus zest. The alcohol is present, but not in flavor, just slightly in warming and body. A nice imperial IPA.
